Huntley Jukes UCLA Defender Before Running In TD
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah Utes quarterback Tyler Huntley pump faked his way past a UCLA defender before running into the end zone for a two-yard TD.
The score gave Utah a 7-3 lead at the end of the first quarter.
Before Huntley’s touchdown, tight end Brant Kuithe made a nice play that landed at the two yard line.
Huntley ran in his fifth rushing touchdown of the season. Through the first quarter, Kuithe caught three of Huntley’s four pass completions for 37 yards.
Utah scored on their first drive after the defense made some key plays in red zone to avoid a UCLA touchdown and forcing them to kick a field goal with a sack by Bradlee Anae.
Anae now has 26 career sacks, 9 this season. He is tied with Filipo Mokofisi Sr. for third all-time in school history.
UCLA enters the game against Utah with a three-game winning streak. Both Utah and the Bruins control their destiny in the Pac-12 South and the winner will have a great chance of reaching the Pac-12 Championship game.
